Intel is constructing devoted gaming graphics playing cards, due out in Q1 2022, and we could have simply gotten our first have a look at the large one, the Arc Alchemist. Listed here are some leaked pictures from YouTuber Moore’s Regulation is Useless (by way of Videocardz):
Arc is Intel’s new GPU model, designed to compete with Nvidia GeForce and AMD Radeon, and the Arc Alchemist is the primary GPU within the firm’s roadmap that’s really scheduled to launch. The corporate had beforehand constructed the Intel DG1 to check the GPU waters, however that was a relatively weak card, primarily based on the Xe LP (low-power) graphics structure, and customers couldn’t really purchase it. This new card is a part of Intel’s Xe HPG roadmap (high-power / gaming) and is alleged to ship efficiency akin to an Nvidia RTX 3070 because of 512 execution items (EUs) and 16GB of GDDR6 reminiscence.
Leaks recommend that Intel may have a number of variants of its “DG2” GPU within the works, together with lighter variations with 448EUs, 384EUs, 256EUs or as few as 128EUs for an entry stage GPU. Even that will be notably greater than the variety of graphics core clusters that Intel has sometimes built-in into its personal CPUs.
